Pray for us, so that the word of the Lord may speed forward and be glorified, as it among you.
- 2 Thessalonians 3.1
It was with this spirit that a Catholic-led interfaith team of biblical scholars undertook the challenge to translate the Bible into modern English. The result is the New American Bible, a Catholic Bible translation equally suitable for private devotions, careful study, and reading aloud in public. Drawing upon recent textual scholarship and reflecting careful consideration of the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Revised Edition NAB contains a fully revised Old Testament and a Psalter that is rendered to provide a smooth, rhythmic translation.
The NABRE New American Bible Revised Edition contains:
- A careful translation of the original language texts
- Introductions and outlines for every book of the Bible
- Over 8,000 helpful notes prepared by the best Catholic biblical scholars
- A thorough cross-reference system
This edition contains a complete list of readings for Sunday Mass and Major Feasts of the Year, as well as a Weekday Lectionary.
